ArtsProfessional has recently announced a new "dedicated space for all the news on how the coronavirus is affecting arts workers" called CovidCulture.

Details of the microsite were circulated to Arts Professional subscribers through the following message:

"We all face uncertain times, and community matters more than ever, so we’re going to do everything we can to share knowledge and support our sector’s wellbeing, career resilience and creative purpose during the pandemic.

From today you’ll be able to access CovidCulture, a dedicated space for all the news on how the coronavirus is affecting arts workers.

Updated regularly, CovidCulture microsite will bring you the latest resources, news, ideas and information to help sustain cultural organisations, creative careers, and support the sector’s workers, including:

  • Campaigns: Who’s speaking up for the arts? Here’s what unions, member organisations, campaigners and supporters are doing and saying on your behalf.
  • Health and Wellbeing: Advice and ideas here for preserving your mental and physical health, and supporting those around you.
